Quick! Get the dandelions!

One of nature's greatest liver allies is dandelion.

They're in beautiful full bloom right now!

Eat a few today to give your liver a boost....


High in vitamins and minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A, B and C

Dandelion Leaves

Dandelion leaves are tastiest before and after flowering (early spring, late autumn), but they can be eaten all year round.


The flavour is bitter and they're marvellous for tonifying your Fire energy. They're one of the supreme liver cleansing foods. If you want good skin, you have to look after your liver! If your liver is overloaded with chemicals and food that's difficult to digest, then the second biggest organ of elimination sets in. And that's your skin. That's one possible reason why you get spots, if you do....


Here's my favourite way to eat the leaves, whizzed into a green smoothie.

1 large handful spinach leaves

half that much of dandelion leaves

1 cup frozen mango

2 cups water (or coconut water is really good)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tsp grated ginger root

1/4 c frozen pineapple


Wash the leaves thoroughly.

Put everything in the blender and whizz.

If you prefer a sweeter flavour, you can add a little maple syrup.

But eating bitter things will reduce your craving for sweet things over time.

This makes 2 cups. I drink it through the day.



Dandelion Flowers

OMG - you have to try Noisette Dandelion Flowers! Dandelions in butter are delicious.


Just fry the flowers (pick them at the very top of the stem - you don't want the stem) in melted butter until the butter just begins to turn brown. Eat them straight away. They're quite bitter - that's the point. Try them mashed up on bread or stir them into scrambled eggs.


Dandelion flower tea is good too. Just pour water over a few dandelion flowers, allow it to steep for a short while and drink. Add honey if you like.
